HubSpot offers a lot of functionality. One of the things it does best is providing you one powerful, easy-to-use platform to run complete inbound marketing campaigns at scale. HubSpot allows you to utilize their Email Marketing tools for FREE, and also as part of their premium Marketing Hub editions.

Default Subscription Management

If you are using HubSpot to manage your email marketing, you may or may not already be aware: When you create a new email campaign in HubSpot, you MUST include a link to allow your customer to manage their subscription preferences page. However, what you may not be aware of is that by default, the subscription preferences page looks like this:

HubSpot provides Subscription Preferences pages with a plain-text, non-styled template that is enabled by default and can leave your customers confused thinking something is broken. Your customer may be thinking “Did they forget to style this page or did I land on a bad link? Is this even for the right company? I don’t see a logo or company name.” None of which is a good thing.

It’s always baffled us why HubSpot does this by default. In HubSpot’s defense, it is part of their Onboarding Checklist to go in and update these subscription preferences pages. But if you forgot, or just don’t know how, your customers could be landing on this page and thinking those same thoughts
